How 7th pay commission will change your life, Indian economy

The strongest effect of the 7th pay commission will be on the aggregate demand in the Indian economy, which is likely to witness a huge push in terms of creation of jobs and revenue generation.

In order to keep the exchequer healthy to fund implementation of the seventh pay commission recommendations, the Finance Ministry has asked government departments to avoid last minute spending rush in the final quarter of the fiscal.

The Finance Ministry has categorically told them to ensure that they don't exceed their respective budget allocations. It said that the departments would not get additional grants as the government had to bear the burden of the implementation of the seventh pay commission.

Incidentally, the Finance Ministry made an exception for the MNREGA expenditure while it conveyed its message to other ministries during a discussion on the revised estimates for the current fiscal year.

SO, WHAT WILL CHANGE WITH 7TH PAY COMMISSION

The full implementation of the 7th pay commission's recommendations will bring an average 23.5 per cent raise in their income for about one crore central government employees and pensioners.

The implementation of the CPC recommendations will bring more cash- digital or physical- in the hands of salaried people, who will trigger higher consumption, in turn.

More money in large number of family is likely to push demand for cars and houses, as many bankers expect. This will revive the slightly sluggish lending sector.

With more money in hand is expected to push higher consumer demand for durable goods, which will give impetus to industrial sector leading to creation of more jobs.

The past experience of implementation of pay commission's recommendations suggests that automobile sector and companies dealing in consumer durables and FMCGs get huge push and are the primary beneficiaries.

With more expenditure by the large number of salaried people and their dependents will lead to higher revenue for the government. More money also means increased savings, which have been the biggest strength of the middle class economy of the country.

More demand for consumer goods will also push inflation but given the fact that the prices have been under the check for better part of the past two years, this new trend should not trouble the citizenry and worry the government.

In anticipation of the positive impact of the seventh pay commission, the RBI has been asking the banks to lower the interest rates. So, auto, car and home loans may become cheaper once the government announces to give the allowances to its 47 lakh employees and about 53 lakh pensioners once the model code conduct is lifted after the assembly elections in five states.

A combination of higher discretionary income and lower interest rates is good for real estate sector, which has been gasping for fresh lease of breath.

Higher consumption and demand are likely to create more jobs in the country in various sectors- particularly manufacturing. Clearly, the strongest effect of the 7th pay commission will be on the aggregate demand in the Indian economy.

7th Pay Commission | Employees to get benefits with retrospective effect: FM

Jammu and Kashmir’s Finance Minister Dr Haseeb Drabu Wednesday clarified that the employees of the state will get 7th pay commission benefits with retrospective effect from January 1, 2016.

Responding to the opposition in the Legislative Council here, Drabu said the PDP government has accepted to implement the pay commission recommendations without any hartals by the employees.

“In the past, employees had to come on roads and go on strike to push for implementation of pay commission, but this time our government has ordered its implementation as it is their right,” he said.

“Employees will get the benefits of the pay commission with retrospective effect from January 2016,” Drabu said, adding that the government is also working on formulating plan for paying arrears on this account.

“The Secretaries will formulate roadmap for payment of arrears,” he added.

Jammu and Kashmir will implement the recommendations of the 7th pay commission from April 2018 to give a massive 23.5 per cent salary hike to the government employees and pensioners in the state, Finance Minister had said while presenting his third consecutive budget.

Drabu in his budget speech to the state assembly said the hike in salaries and post-retirement payouts will be as per the commission recommendations, which were implemented by the central government.

The central government announced the pay hike for its employees in June last year and a majority of the states have also implemented the recommendations of the pay panel fixing the minimum monthly salary for an employee at Rs 18,000 from the earlier Rs 7,000.

The maximum salary, as per the pay panel recommendations, is fixed at Rs 2.5 lakh for the Cabinet Secretary, which is more than double the previous pay of Rs 90,000 a month for the country’s top bureaucrat.  For other officers in the top scale — secretary or equivalent, the monthly salary is now around Rs 225,000.

7th pay commission: This is why Modi government not giving hike to 47 lakh employees

Reports suggest that the committee under the chairmanship of finance secretary Ashok Lavasa has finalised its report for salary hike in accordance with the recommendations of the seventh CPC, but the government is unable to pay the allowances to its employees due to cash crunch.

More than 14 months have passed since the seventh pay commission report was submitted and little less seven months have elapsed since the union cabinet approved implementation of the salary hike recommendations, but the central government employees are still awaiting the good news.
Demonetisation is said to be the reason behind the delay in announcing allowances by the Narendra Modi government for the 47 lakh employees and 53 lakh pensioners. The number of beneficiaries includes 14 lakh employees and 18 lakh pensions from the armed forces

HOW DEMONETISATION AFFECTS PAY HIKE: THINGS TO KNOW

The government has announced that it will implement the seventh pay commission's recommendations from January 1 last year. But, in the aftermath of demonetisation, the government is not in position to make the final decision.

The seventh pay commission proposed a 138.71 per cent hike in housing allowance (HRA) and 49.79 per cent for other allowances.

The pay commission estimated that during the current fiscal, the hike in allowances would add a burden of Rs 29,300 crore (Rs 17,200 crore under HRA and Rs 12,100 crore under other allowances). This is a huge sum but after demonetisation, the government is working hard to stave off the cash crunch that set in.

The Modi government has constituted a committee to look into the recommendations regarding allowances and the manner of their implementation.

Some reports suggest that the committee under the chairmanship of finance secretary Ashok Lavasa has finalised its report, but the government is unable to pay the allowances to its employees due to cash crunch.

The employees' unions have been putting pressure on the finance ministry to announce hike in allowances at the earliest.

The announcement of assembly elections in five states has given some time for the government as it cannot announce pay hikes till the model code of conduct is in place.

The assembly elections have given the government time till March 8, by when there would be some additional cash in circulation. But, by then the budget would have been presented and accommodating over Rs 29,000 crore for salaries and pensions in the budge may pose a problem.

The delay in implementation of the seventh pay commission's recommendations has caused tremendous irritation and frustration among employees.

The BJP may have to face a backlash in the assembly elections in the five states, two of which is ruled by the party either directly or in alliance. Thus, demonetisation move by the Modi government may strike a double blow to the BJP in polls

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: – Seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations -amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules
.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Departments OM No AB.14017/61/2008-Estt. (RR) dated 24/03/2009 regarding amendment of Service Rules/ Recruitment Rules in pursuance of Sixth Pay Commission’s recommendations. The revised pay structure recommended by 6 thCPC and approved by the Government included a number of ‘merged grades’ with a common Pay Band and Grade Pay.

2.             In order to regulate the service rendered in the pre-revised scale where there have been merger of more than one grade into one with a single grade pay, it was advised that a Note to the following effect may be inserted under relevant columns in the Schedule of RRs and under relevant provisions in Service Rules.

                 “Note: For the purpose of computing minimum qualifying service for promotion, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission. For purposes of appointment on deputation/ absorption basis, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission except where there has been merger of more than one pre-revised scale of pay into one grade with a common grade pay/pay scale, and where this benefit will extend only for the post(s) for which that grade pay/pay scale is the normal replacement grade without any upgradation.”

3.          It has been observed that after implementation of 7th CPC there are only a few cases of merger/upgradation of pay scale. However in cases where merger/ upgradation of pay is recommended in the 7th CPC and the same has been accepted, there is a need to provide a Note on similar lines as above with relevant changes i.e. the date 1.1.2006 needs to be replaced with 1.1.2016 and “6th CPC” is to be replaced with “7th CPC”. In other cases the Note as referred
above need not to be prescribed in the RRs/SRs where no merger/ upgradation are
involved as per 7th CPC recommendations.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations — revision of pay scales — amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM of even number dated 9th August, 2016 regarding amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules by replacing the existing Pay Band and Grade Pay with the corresponding Level in the Pay Matrix in the revised pay structure recommended by the Seventh CPC and notified in the CCS(Revised Pay) Rules, 2016.

2. Subsequently, this Department held meetings in October/November, 2016 with the administrative Ministries/Departments to review the progress in the implementation of the OM. An important suggestion made in the meetings was with respect to facilitating the process of consultation with the Legislative Department for drafting notification for amendment of RRs in accordance with OM dated 9th August, 2016 and its Hindi translation so as to expedite the issue of notification. In this regard, this Department in consultation with Legislative Department has prepared a model notification in English and Hindi for use of the Administrative Ministries/Departments. These are annexed at Annexure I and Annexure II.

3. Another issue which came up in the meeting is with respect to retention of standard Note under Co1.11 incorporated in the Schedule of the RRs regarding the regulation of service rendered prior to implementation of 6 thCPC, in those cases where the issue of upgradation/merger of the posts were involved. The relevant Note reads as follows:

“Note: For the purpose of computing minimum qualifying service for promotion, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission. ”  and/or

“Note: For purposes of appointment on deputation/ absorption basis, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission except where there has been merger of more than one pre-revised scale of pay into one grade with a common grade pay/pay scale, and where this benefit will extend only for the post(s) for which that grade pay/pay scale is the normal replacement grade without any upgradation.”

4. After the implementation of 7 th CPC, there are only a few cases of merger/upgradation of pay scale. It has been decided in consultation with UPSC that in cases where merger/ upgradation of pay are not involved in the recommendations of the 7 thCPC, the Note as referred above is not to be prescribed in the RRs/SRs. The guidelines in this regard have also been separately issued. The model notification includes a provision for deletion of the Note.

5. The Ministries/Departments are requested to finalise draft notification for amendment of the SRs/RRs in line with the model notification and thereafter, refer the same to the Legislative Department for vetting. The Legislative Department may dispose of references received from the Ministries/Departments within two weeks. Any amendment which is beyond the scope of the model rules will be finalized in usual process i.e. consultation with DoPT, UPSC and Legislative Department.

6. This Department is monitoring the implementation of the OM dated 09.08.2016. All Ministries / Departments are therefore requested to furnish information as per Annexure-III at the earliest.
